Are you faced with divorce? Do you have at least one child with your soon-to-be former spouse?
Not only will divorce change your life, but it will do the same for your children. Fortunately, this doesn’t necessarily have to be a bad thing. When both parents work together, the end result can be a situation in which everybody, including children, is better off in the end.
It is important for both parents to ensure the financial well being of any children after a divorce. In other words, each parent has an important responsibility.
In most cases, the noncustodial parent will provide the custodial parent with child support. The amount paid depends on many factors, such as:
— The gross monthly income of both parents.
— The number of nights each parent spends with the child.
— The arrangement determined by the court.
Once a child support determination is made, it doesn’t mean the amount will remain the same into the future. This could change based on many factors, such as a job loss or serious health concern.
Should you be receiving child support? Do you have reason to believe you are paying too much? If you find yourself in either situation, the advice and guidance of an experienced lawyer can be very helpful.
